Since the Last
Resort cove is on the shallow end of Long Pond (9
miles long), the water temperature will rise more
quickly near our camps than where the water is deeper,
and Brook Trout, Salmon and Small Mouth Bass usually
become active sooner closer to the camps. Long Pond
has a naturally reproducing population of native Brook
Trout which has been supplemented by the stocking of
an additional 3-4,000 trout in recent years. Although
it is always a fisherman's challenge to find the fish,
many of our fishermen and women have found their
efforts to be well-rewarded. The limit of Brook Trout
per day is two per person. The limit of Salmon is one.
There is no limit on Bass and they can be
In addition to the fishing opportunities in Long Pond, there is stream fishing in Upper Churchill Stream, bordering The Last Resort. All streams in the area have a 5 fish limit for brook trout. There are also approximately 60 ponds, lakes, rivers and streams available for fishing in the Jackman area.
Spring is a wonderful time to
observe the changes in nature--the leaves come out in
late May and there is an explosion of green in early
June. May is the time for those long, bugless walks in
the woods, marveling at the loud and varied warbling
of the songbirds while at the same time being filled
with a sense of solitude. Birds of all kinds are
nesting, baby animals are making their appearance,
wildflowers are bursting forth, and the insect world
comes alive in early June. Nights are filled with the
sounds of loons, spring peepers, black ducks laughing,
and the occasional hooting of an owl.
During early-May to mid-June, moose may be
visible along Route 201, north of Jackman, and Route
15, east of Jackman during the early morning and late
evening hours. This is also the time when moose are
walking the woods roads, foraging for newly emerging
leaves. By late June, moose are occasionally visible
from your cabin porch. Early risers have the best
chance of seeing moose by hopping into a canoe and
quietly paddling toward the moose before the mist
rises from the lake.
